Mesh Wi-Fi System Roundup – Catrachadas

Mesh WiFi routers are a current trend in the network market and aim to offer consumers some of the advanced features of corporate network systems. How well do they work and what benefit do you get when you switch to one? We're going to dive deep into the top players in the market today to find out.

Each wireless network can generally be classified according to three criteria: coverage, speed, and network usability. Traditional home Wi-Fi networks have brought these three areas together quite well, but always seem to be missing. High performance systems are often difficult to set up and do not have the best range. Basic products are easy to set up, but leave something to be desired in terms of performance. For tech savvy users who want to get the most out of their system, a common solution is to connect multiple networks. This provides improved speed and coverage, but can be difficult to set up and maintain. Modern mesh Wi-Fi systems are designed to cover all three areas.

A perfect Wi-Fi system is one you never have to think about. Setup should be simple and require no advanced network skills. It should cover your entire living space and be easy to improve for larger floor plans. This means no dead zones or coverage gaps. After all, it should offer solid performance on multiple devices without buffering.

Before we start, a few words to put this in perspective: If you already have a Wi-Fi system that covers your entire living area and delivers consistently high speeds, a mesh system will not help you. If you have a slow internet connection from your internet service provider, a mesh system will not help you. Mesh systems typically offer lower peak performance than stand-alone high-end routers. This means that a mesh system in smaller locations will usually perform worse than a single access point due to interference and lower price hardware. Mesh systems cost around 2-3 times the cost of a conventional home network, so this must also be taken into account.

If a mesh system is designed for good performance, areas are too large for a single access point. The most basic solution in this scenario was buying a cheap range extender, but as many can confirm, extenders rarely work as well as you would expect. Standard range extenders usually create a new network. This may show good signal strength on your mobile device, but extenders tend to send and receive slowly and poorly at the same time, since they usually only contain a single antenna. This halves your usable speed.

A common solution that people think will work is to give your range extender network the same name as the main network. This happens in corporate settings, where there may be hundreds of access points in a building that all share the same network. Enterprise network hardware is designed to create seamless networks without sacrificing handover performance. Unfortunately, mobile devices are often not intelligent enough to switch between the basic networks created by consumer range extenders. This means that you will have to switch between networks manually depending on the room you are in.

Go to the Mesh Wi-Fi system

Mesh Wi-Fi systems use a combination of lower performing nodes and advanced handover techniques to create the seamless network you want. These networks are usually very easy to set up and manage at a high level. The nodes constantly pass on traffic and adjust their internal routing based on the current network statistics. If someone turns on a microwave and blows across the entire 2.4 GHz band, the network can mainly switch to the 5 GHz band. This is all done internally, so you don't have to manually switch from "myNetwork_2.4" to "myNetwork_5.0" or "myNetwork_2.4_extended".

In newer phones with 5 GHz 802.11ac chipsets, mesh networks can offer a significant performance boost by expanding the range of the 5 GHz signal. The main limitation with 2.4 GHz networks is their speed, while with 5 GHz networks their range is. Even with the high-end router, the 5 GHz radio can only be as powerful according to FCC rules. Adding multiple access points can help the fast 5 GHz band to go further.

Modern mesh networks can be divided into two main classes depending on how the devices work. Some systems consist of a powerful main node with additional, smaller network nodes. In other systems, the nodes are all identical and can be used anywhere in the network. One challenge in creating powerful networks is to reconcile node-to-user communication with node-to-node communication. The more nodes a network has, the more control messages and non-user data have to be transmitted. Most of it is done internally by the network. Node placement is easy, and some systems can even help you by telling you whether nodes are too close or too far away.

Today's summary includes systems that fall into both camps as shown below. The most popular systems from Netgear, Linksys, Ubiquiti, Google and Amazon Eero are included. The prices shown may vary depending on sales and place of purchase.

Each manufacturer sells a variety of products across multiple budgets, but we have products from the middle to the top tier. Most systems are supplied as a complete package consisting of two or three units and can add further mesh points if required. For each unit, we look at the setup, usability, and other notable features. We'll look at performance and recommendations at the end.

TP-Link Deco M4

The first product we will look at is the TP-Link Deco line. We tested the Deco M4, which belongs to a variety of products in the Deco ecosystem. No matter what products you buy, they are all compatible. A unique feature of the Deco line from TP-Link is the possible integration into the Powerline network via the P7 system. This can help expand your network beyond the Wi-Fi range.

The Deco M4 is a symmetrical system with identical nodes. These units are quite large compared to most of the other systems we are going to test today and require an external power supply.

They have limited connectivity with just two Ethernet sockets, which may not be enough for some setups. In a common scenario, you have the main connection to your modem, a laptop or desktop connection, entertainment / gaming devices, IoT hubs, printers, and more. With two ports, you'll almost certainly need to purchase an additional network switch if more than one device is to be hard-wired. Fortunately, all mesh nodes also have two ports, so they can be connected to other nodes for lower bandwidth connections such as printers or IoT devices.

When setting up the Deco, you can choose between router or bridge mode. Router mode refers to a standard home network in which you would connect one of the nodes to a modem. Bridge mode is for a network that already has a router, but you want to add Wi-Fi functionality. This is most commonly used in a scenario where your ISP provides you with a router but you want to use your own WiFi.

The setup for the Deco was easy and new nodes were added one after the other. Unfortunately, the mobile app is very simple and difficult to use. After a few searches we were able to find the functions we were looking for. Some advanced features are available, but to simplify the setup interface, it is somewhat hidden from users. TP-Link also eliminates all web interfaces that we've seen from other systems, and instead relies on the app you run on your phone.

We had no major problems with the deco after the setup. This is a trend that we have seen in mesh systems where interfaces are designed for less tech-savvy consumers. Ultimately, we think this is a good idea if done correctly.

D-Link Covr

The D-Link Covr system is a new range of mesh Wi-Fi products. They offer the Covr-2202 system with two nodes and speeds of up to 2200 Mbit / s as well as the Covr-C1203 with three nodes and speeds of up to 1200 Mbit / s. Surprisingly, the two-knot system (which we tested) is rated at 6,000 square feet, while the C1203 is rated at 5,000. The three-unit system only costs $ 150, which is about $ 100 cheaper than the two-unit system.

These systems can be expanded, but it doesn't look like D-Link is selling individual units, so you'll have to buy a brand new kit. The Covr-2202 is a symmetrical system, ie both units are the same and can be configured as a router or satellite. Both devices have two Ethernet ports and feel very well built. They are the heaviest of all the units we tested.

As with all other systems, the initial setup was simple and essentially consisted of clicking "Next" through multiple prompts in the app. In addition to a mobile app, the Covr system is also one of the few systems with a web interface. This is useful for advanced users who want additional configuration options while leaving the mobile app for basic adjustments. We had minor mobile app freeze issues when trying to check some network settings, but otherwise it was fine.

A feature that we were happy to see with the Covr are automatic firmware upgrades. Outdated devices are one of the biggest threats to network security today, where routers can be hacked and converted into bots in a botnet. The vast majority of vendors release patches when vulnerabilities are released, but a minority of users apply them. Applying patches automatically should help make your network more secure and harder to hack.

Ubiquiti AmpliFi

Ubiquiti is known as both a prosumer and an entry-level enterprise network company. Your UniFi access points are often considered the gold standard for WiFi at home and are not cheap. They recently entered the mesh Wi-Fi market with their AmpliFi product line for home networks. These should offer a mixture of the performance of the UniFi line and the user-friendliness of a conventional home network.

Your product line consists of three systems. The cheapest is the AmpliFi Instant, in the middle the AmpliFi HD Mesh System and the most expensive is the AmpliFi Gamer & # 39; s Edition. The instant system costs from $ 180 for a 2-pack, the HD system from $ 350. The main difference between them is speed and range. The instant system is an AC1200 system with 2×2 MIMO, while the HD system is an AC1600 system with 3×3 MIMO. The Gamer & # 39; s Edition with which we have to test here is the same as the HD system with some additional software improvements. The routers in both systems are cubes with 4 Ethernet ports and USB-C power inputs. The mesh points are high, thin and are connected directly to a wall socket.

The Gamer & # 39; s Edition has a "Low Latency" mode, with the help of which latency-sensitive traffic can be prioritized over bandwidth-sensitive traffic. Surprisingly, the HD system does not offer QoS, which most other systems we have tested offer. Paying the additional $ 30 seems like a good idea if you're playing over Wi-Fi, but we think this product is missing the mark. The mesh dots have no ethernet ports, which we would expect from any desktop or console player. While it would not be as fast as a direct cable connection to the main router, the connection to the extender via Ethernet would certainly be faster than a wireless connection.

The priority mode "latency" did not work well in our tests either. We tested the use of a 200Mbps home connection and although it's connected directly to the modem, performance was limited to 100Mbps. We found no ping difference between latency and bandwidth prioritization. When testing with the integrated speed test of the AmpliFi Mobile App, the latency optimization increased my latency from 14 ms to 18 ms. We would stay away from the Gamer & # 39; s Edition and simply opt for the HD system.

The rest of the app is not bad though. It's a little confusing at first, but once you know where everything is, it's very powerful. You can view the status of all network points including their signal strength, change the backhaul frequency, stop the Internet for each network node or user device, add additional SSIDs and much more. One notable thing that was missing was parental controls and web filtering. You can schedule when devices can access the Internet, but there is no content moderation like most other devices. However, you may find that Ubiquiti is no stranger to creating high-end Wi-Fi networks that are easy to control and work well.

Linksys Velop

Linksys is one of the best known brands for consumer networks and has one of the most rounded and flexible Wi-Fi power lines on the market. This includes devices with many different options for speed, coverage, color and cost. They have systems from just $ 200 up to $ 500 with additional mesh points starting at $ 130. In addition to dedicated mesh units, Linksys also offers conventional standalone routers that are compatible with mesh nodes. This is a much more expensive option, but it gives you the flexibility and performance of a traditional network with the coverage of a mesh system.

For testing, we have the stand-alone router MR8300 with 2 additional mesh dots from the AC4400 kit. The mesh dots below have two ethernet ports that are available in black or white. You start by setting up the main router and then adding the additional mesh points. Setup was straightforward, but took a little longer than expected. A lot of time was spent waiting for tasks that shouldn't have taken so long, but there was no way to skip them. We also noticed that the system was slow to update after changing a setting. The system took approximately 10 minutes to change the router's IP address. This would take about 1-2 minutes on most systems.

The Linksys app prompts you to update to the latest firmware when you set up the network, and will continue to be updated automatically in the future. Both the app and the website are well polished and offer numerous advanced functions in addition to a basic user interface. Interestingly, the web interface always tries to redirect you to download the mobile app when you open it. There you will get a good overview of all devices in the network, what type of devices they are and how / where they are connected.

Like all other products tested in this summary, the network points have an RGB LED that indicates the status of the network. This is helpful for troubleshooting. We wish the app would be clearer if a knot failed. Most other systems will immediately show you a message, but this is not clear in the Linksys app. Despite these minor problems, normal use of the Velop system was fine 99% of the time.

Amazon Eero

Eero was one of the first players in the Mesh Wi-Fi category before it became popular. The company was recently taken over by Amazon, which brought with it some privacy concerns, but also financial issues that became apparent in Eero systems and became more affordable and competitive. The Eero uses an x ​​+ 1 system with a main node and several satellite nodes. They offer two types of nodes, a basic product "Beacon" and a more powerful unit "Pro". In its three-part standard kit, the pro unit is the main node that serves as a router. The beacons are then placed throughout the house. For larger houses, they offer a kit with three Eero professionals.

Since eero has been using mesh WiFi from the start, their entire experience is well polished. The setup was very simple and the main unit automatically recognized the satellites and formed the entire network in one step. The mobile app has a good home screen that shows the network status at a glance. You can see which devices are connected, run a quick speed test, and see if any of the nodes are experiencing problems.

The Eero system is heavily cloud-based, which means the app is almost unusable if the internet goes down, which can be frustrating. There is also no web interface to control the network.

The main node has only two Ethernet ports and the satellite nodes have none. So if you have more than a single wired device in your home, you're out of luck unless you buy an extra switch. A nice feature of the satellite nodes is that they have a built-in night light that turns on automatically when the ambient light fails.

In addition to selling the Wi-Fi nodes, eero has an integrated security service for $ 100 per year. You will get a free trial when you set up a network, and it will be deactivated after it expires. It's actually a pretty good deal, and includes a malicious website threat scan, parental controls, ad blocking, 5 VPN accounts via, a 1Password subscription, and a Malwarebytes subscription for 3 devices. Amazon is clearly trying to make this product accessible to mainstream consumers who want better WiFi. So it's good to see such a strong focus on security.

Google Wi-Fi

Google’s offering is perhaps the most well-known due to its marketing efforts and brand awareness. At $ 240 for a 3-knot set, it's the cheaper end of the products we're testing here. The nodes are symmetrical with 2 Ethernet ports and a USB-C power connector on the bottom. The rest of the design is sleek and resembles two stacked white hockey pucks. The only accent is an RGB LED ring in the middle that shows the status of the node and network.

In typical Google style, the setup process and user experience are excellent. The network was easy to set up and I had it up and running within 10 minutes. The app hides most of the advanced functions and offers a clear interface for managing the network. In contrast to most other systems, Google does not advertise as much for the technical data and the speed of the devices. It's clear that they improve the user experience and overall Google ecosystem rather than raw performance.

Given Google's business model in terms of user data and privacy, this is a big problem for those considering the system. Google's privacy policy clarifies that the websites you visit are not recorded. However, you collect metadata about your network. This includes things like data usage, network status, system settings, device types and much more. You can disable this data collection, but then most of the advanced features of the network will also be disabled.

Overall, I found the Google system to be acceptable and affordable, but with no outstanding features.

Netgear Orbi

The Netgear Orbi line is the last system to complete this review. They are by far the largest units, so make sure you have enough space to accommodate them. I have a 2-unit system that contains the RBR20 router and the RBS50 satellite. A unique feature of the Orbi system is the addition of a combination of a cable modem and router. This can help you save a lot of money if your internet package includes a monthly equipment fee for your internet service provider's modem. Netgear also manufactures some smart speaker network nodes with built-in Alexa. For entrepreneurial customers, Netgear also offers a professional range of indoor and outdoor access points.

The mobile app was a little disappointing. You can view the network status and change some basic functions, but it is not possible to configure much beyond the name and password. You have to go through the – admittedly very good – web interface. One thing I didn't like about the mobile app and web interface was the amount of upselling that Netgear tried. Popups and Netgear ads are everywhere, trying to get you to buy more nodes or security features. None of the other systems have this and it was a bit annoying to see ads trying to get me to buy a system that I already own. You can disable the popups, but I still found it unnecessary how much of the user interface was intended for this.

Once you've set up the system, you rarely need to go to the user interface, so these problems are not all that serious. In terms of features, the Orbi has pretty much everything. Parental controls, additional security monitoring via Bitdefender, remote management, mobile status warnings, VPN and more. The Orbi has a dedicated 5 GHz backhaul, so user devices like the Covr system correspond to an AC1200 system. Tri-band systems are preferable to dual-band systems because a 5 GHz band can be provided for the backhaul between nodes. This leaves more bandwidth for client devices. Of course, when a client is connected to a satellite, it can only reach speeds as fast as the backhaul.

In addition to the mesh systems, we used a traditional enthusiast-level router to determine how a network without mesh would behave in the same scenarios. It made our list of the best routers this year, so it's not a problem.

The Netgear Nighthawk X4S is a standalone AC2600 router and thus the fastest single device in our test. We used this $ 200 mid-range device as a reference, but the purpose was not to check it out so we don't go into details except for the fact that it's a solid router. Regardless of how unusual your router is, there are strict FCC rules on how powerful the antennas can be. For large houses with a dense wall structure, there is nothing you can do to increase the range except add more access points. This single router costs slightly less than all of the mesh systems in our summary. However, if you pay more, you will only get faster in certain scenarios and with compatible devices.

Test methodology and benchmarks

We tested each system individually in an identical setting. The area was a three-story house with a basement and two floors above ground. In 3-knot systems, two knots were placed on opposite ends of the main floor, and the third knot was placed between them on the second floor. In 2-node systems, the nodes were only placed on the main floor and nothing on the second floor.

We performed speed and signal strength tests at five locations. The first was in the same room as the main router, the second was halfway between the first two mesh points, the third was in the basement, the fourth was outside near the second mesh point, and the last one was up in the Close to the third stitch point (if any). Below is a rough clipart drawing of the node positions (red) and the test positions (blue). In addition to speed and signal strength, we also tested latency at positions one and four.

We used the latest generation of mobile phones as clients for testing and iPerf 3.0 as a server. At each test site, we ran tests with a single client and then with three clients to simulate an overloaded environment. Each speed test lasted 15 seconds and we averaged the results from three runs. The latency tests were much easier since they were only 30 pings on average.

The first results represent a typical residence with three mobile devices that all use Wi-Fi at the same time. This tests how well the system and nodes can handle multiple simultaneous connections.

When you look at the results, it's clear that Netgear's Orbi system is by far the fastest overall system on the market. It was twice as fast as most of the other equipment in a room and in the basement. The TP-Link Deco system had the fastest combined speed of 379 Mbit / s on all three devices, but fell quickly with increasing range. The runner-up here was the D-Link Covr system. Surprisingly, these were both two-unit systems when the rest of the competition had three units. As you add more nodes, the range increases, but so do control messages and routing across multiple nodes. The standalone Nighthawk router couldn't even maintain three connections in the basement. This shows the advantages of the range of a mesh system.

In addition, I would give the TP-Link Deco system third place. Places four and five are closely linked to Velop and Eero, most recently with Google Wi-Fi and Ubiquiti AmpliFi. We expected the Eero and Google systems not to work as well as they are being marketed not only for performance enthusiasts, but for a wider audience. However, we were disappointed with Ubiquiti's AmpliFi system. We had high hopes for their expertise in corporate networking, but the results were disappointing.

If we move on to the results for the single device tests, we get a similar story. These results were higher than the three device tests because the channel conflicts and resource use to maintain separate connections were lower. The Orbi system was still the fastest overall, but margins have narrowed. Trading in Deco and Covr systems is considered the next best system. If there is a sufficiently strong signal, the standalone Nighthawk router also works well.

This shows that it is often better for smaller sites to stick to a single, centrally located standalone router than to a mesh system. However, only a measly 1 Mbit / s was able to reach the test site in the basement.

The AmpliFi system did better here than in the previous test. However, the Google system was still the slowest. Finally we have the Velop and Eero systems back in the middle of the package.

The signal strength tests are interesting to look at, but given the speed results, don't tell the whole story. Note that the units are dBm, so a higher value (closest to zero) is better. As a reference, a jump of 3 dBm indicates a signal that is twice as strong. Test positions 1 and 4 were both very close to the nodes, so we can really see the orbi system exploding.

Wie erwartet hatte der eigenständige Nighthawk eine überdurchschnittliche Signalstärke im selben Raum, fällt jedoch schnell ab, sodass er im Keller fast unbrauchbar ist. Wenn wir uns die Ergebnisse im Obergeschoss für Covr und Orbi ansehen, können wir die Ergebnisse von nur zwei Maschenpunkten sehen. Sie hatten jedoch an diesem Ort die schnellsten Geschwindigkeitsergebnisse, was ein Beweis für ihre Codierung und Signalqualität ist. Selbst mit einem schwächeren Signal können sie immer noch schnellere Geschwindigkeiten als die Konkurrenz liefern. Es ist schwierig, den Rest der Systeme einzustufen, da die Ergebnisse nahe beieinander liegen.

Eine weitere Sache, die wir aus diesen Ergebnissen sehen können, ist der Einfluss der physischen Knotengröße auf die Signalstärke. Der Orbi war mit Abstand der größte und hatte die beste Signalstärke. Die Eero- und Google-Knoten waren die kleinsten und hatten die schlechteste Signalstärke. Dies ist eine ziemlich offensichtliche Schlussfolgerung, aber es wird immer diesen Kompromiss geben. Sie können eine kleine Einheit erhalten, die leicht zu verbergen ist, oder eine große Einheit, die hervorsteht, aber eine gute Leistung erbringt.

Der letzte Test, den wir haben, ist die Latenz. Wir sehen hier eine etwas andere Geschichte als bei den Geschwindigkeitstests. In diesen Ergebnissen ist der Deco der Gewinner mit dem AmpliFi auf dem zweiten Platz. Der Velop wird Dritter, gefolgt von Orbi, Nighthawk und Covr. Die Systeme von Eero und Google waren viel langsamer als die anderen. Ein paar Millisekunden hier und da zwischen Systemen bedeuten nichts für die Leistung in der realen Welt. Abgesehen von den Systemen von Google und Amazon würden Sie kaum einen Unterschied zwischen den Systemen bemerken. Wenn Sie sich für diese wenigen Millisekunden interessieren, sollten Sie einfach in ein kabelgebundenes Netzwerk investieren, da Wi-Fi immer langsamer wird.

closing remarks

Kehren wir zum Preis jedes Systems zurück, damit wir einige Schlussfolgerungen ziehen können. Keines dieser Systeme war schlecht. Wir haben mit allen eine großartige Berichterstattung über das ganze Haus erhalten. Der Einrichtungs- und Installationsprozess war für jeden etwas anders, aber immer unkompliziert.

Sobald sie eingerichtet sind, müssen Sie nicht mehr wirklich an Wi-Fi denken. Für viele Haushalte ist dies möglicherweise der größte Gewinn, da die Systeme autonomer als ein durchschnittlicher Standardrouter sind, einfacher zu sichern und zu verwalten sind und tote Stellen in Ihrem Haus beseitigen sollen.

Wenn Ihnen die größeren Einheiten nichts ausmachen, ist der Netgear Orbi der klare Gewinner in unserer Zusammenfassung. Wenn Sie schnelles und zuverlässiges WLAN wünschen und 330 US-Dollar ausgeben müssen, entscheiden Sie sich dafür.

Das TP-Link Deco M4-System war das billigste der Reihe, zeigte aber immer noch eine relativ gute Leistung. Wenn Sie nicht das absolut schnellste System benötigen, können Sie es für fast die Hälfte des Preises wie das Orbi erhalten, was es zur offensichtlichen Wertauswahl macht. Wir finden, dass die Deko hervorragend für weniger technisch versierte Verwandte geeignet ist, die sich keine Sorgen mehr um WLAN machen möchten.

Wenn Sie 255 US-Dollar ausgeben, erhalten Sie das D-Link Covr-System, das unserer Meinung nach einen besseren Wert als das Orbi darstellt. Der einzige Nachteil ist die eingeschränkte Erweiterbarkeit, wenn nicht nur zwei separate Systeme gekauft und miteinander verbunden werden.

Die AmpliFi-, Velop- und Eero-Systeme waren teurer. Sie haben gut funktioniert, aber wir sehen keine Differenzierung, um sie zusätzlich zu den oben genannten Systemen zu bevorzugen. Das Google-System war das zweitbilligste in der Zusammenfassung, und wir haben es bereits zuvor für seine Zugänglichkeit und Benutzerfreundlichkeit gelobt. Obwohl es jetzt sein Alter mit besserer Konkurrenz zeigt, können wir nicht übersehen, dass es das langsamste Maschensystem war, das wir getestet haben. Es gibt Gerüchte, dass Google in den kommenden Monaten etwas schnelleres verfolgen wird.

Wenn Sie entscheiden möchten, wie viele Netzpunkte Sie kaufen möchten, finden Sie hier eine grobe Empfehlung. Holen Sie sich für eine Wohnung oder ein kleines Haus zwei. Für ein mittelgroßes Haus mit einer Fläche von etwa 3.000 Quadratmetern erhalten Sie drei oder bleiben Sie bei zwei, wenn Sie das Orbi-System verwenden. Wenn Sie ein größeres Haus mit einer Fläche von rund 4.000 Quadratmetern haben, empfehlen wir Ihnen, das Standardsystem zu kaufen und je nach Verteilung Ihres Hauses ein oder zwei zusätzliche Maschenpunkte zu erwerben. Für größere Häuser besteht die optimale Lösung darin, Ethernet-Kabel zu verlegen und einige Geräte als hybride kabelgebundene Zugangspunkte anzuschließen. Alle Systeme in dieser Zusammenfassung mit Ausnahme von Eero und AmpliFi unterstützen diese Option.

Zum Abschluss lauten unsere Empfehlungen wie folgt. Verwenden Sie für ein Budget-System den TP-Link Deco M4. Für das schnellste System oder wenn Sie es zum Verkauf anbieten können, entscheiden Sie sich für den Netgear Orbi. Schauen Sie sich an anderer Stelle in der Mitte den D-Link Covr-2202 an.
